Innovative folk dance on tour in Sweden

Dancenet Sweden’s national co-production is unique in form and size.

Its partners subsidize resources and support to dance artists, and together with the artists create performances, activities and participations.

The current co-production for 2018-2019 is a new performance by Anna Öberg, which she will create together with four dancers and two musicians.

Anna Öberg’s work as a choreographer began with her background in Swedish folk dance. Her profound knowledge of and an innovative approach to the genre has, during past years, been of heightened interest and has contributed to a new understanding of what folk dance is and can become.

The performance will be produced and toured during 2019.
